A RAM expansion for the side slot maybe? Could be for the A1000 as well.

Is there any more detail visible from the opposite side, or is it all plastic (top/bottom as well)?

My guess is that it's for a hand scanner, but I don't think it's for the A500, as the trapdoor supplies it's own power and wouldn't need auxiliary power.

The HC74LS series chips on that board are probably some kind of buffer for the data coming from the scanner.

Some hand scanners used to have PS/2 style plugs, so that's my guess.

It's a Naksha (hand) scanner interface. I have a similar one here, 100% sure.
If you want to get rid of it, let me know as mine is damaged :)

Might I suggest you guys create a trade thread in the right area of the forum for this? That way you can leave feedback when you're done! :)
